away at president obama for not being tough on china. not the way that he mitt romney would be tough on china. but the company mr. romney chose for his backdrop that day, the company that he chose to implicitly help make that case so happened to be a poster child for success by president obama in getting tough on china. in 2009 in the first months of president obama's presidency, american spring wire joined with two other makers to ask for help. china was unfairly dumping steel wire in the united states market at artificial low prices. they asked for help. the commerce department said they would investigate and the commerce department did move to protect american spring wire. they cracked down on china for dumping their underpriced product. thus the company was benefitted. they got the help they wanted. a company that was then used as a backdrop for mitt romney saying president obama had not been tough on china. today mr. romney gave a major address on economic policy. this is part of his closing argument for the presidency. he delivered the speech at a company called kinsler constru

race between barack obama and john mccain that year, colin powell choosing obama for his endorsement was pretty much the last thing in the world the mccain campaign needed to hear. at that point, they were already becoming a really evident long shot. the race was starting to increasingly look like it wasn't even going to be close. and the colin powell endorsement just took the wind out of the mccain campaign's sails. john mccain responded to the endorsement that same day by going on fox news and sighing that, well, it wasn't all that much of a surprise. he at least, though, was able to say even if he did not have colin powell's endorsement, he did have endorsements from some other former republican secretaries of state. so at least he had those names to offer for counterbalance. the romney campaign's counterbalance tonight to them losing the colin powell endorsement this year is a whole different kind of counterbalance. >> you want to call me crazy, go to hell. call me crazy all you want. >> this morning, on cbs, republican former secretary of state colin powell officiall

in the ohio part of ohioa. president obama today was in the iowa part of ohioa. at least president obama was there at the very start of what turned out to be a very busy presidential day. >> this is the first stop on our 48th hour fly-around campaign marathon extravaganza. we're going to pull an all-nighter. no sleep. we're starting here in iowa, we're going to colorado. then we're going to go to nevada. then we're going to florida. virginia, ohio. i am going to stop in chicago to vote. >> when i first saw the transcript of those remarks from the president today, i thought he was sketching out his itinerary from now until election day. but that is what his itinerary is between now and tomorrow. the president is voting in illinois tomorrow. so the iowa, colorado, california, nevada, florida, virginia, and then illinois trip that the president is on right now is a 48-hour trip. it does not even get him until the end of the week. on the other side of the aisle, mitt romney and his running mate, paul ryan, are taking it much slower than the democrats at this point. mr. romney had one e

biggest mistake president obama made. it was wrong. then last night -- >> we're going to be finished by 2014 and when i'm president, we'll make sure we bring our troops out by the end of 2014. >> it's the biggest mistake president obama had ever made. mitt romney, forget it. i'll espouse it too. i don't feel like talking about it. afghanistan is not the only issue. even just on international affairs. to be the guy who didn't mention the war at all in your convention speech, to being the guy who still made no mentions of veterans last night, even as the president went back and talked about veterans, still nothing from mitt romney. then a 180 turn on your policy two weeks before the election, an election that will decide if you become the commander of the troops that you're ignoring. two weeks before the election as if that's something that requires no explanation, and you're just assuming people don't care about it enough to notice? i use this term with hesitance, that but is a lack of seriousness about something that affects 68,000 american families directly. 68,000 american families wh
